De Niro's Early Comb Ad Unearthed

ROBERT DE NIRO's early attempts at finding fame have been revealed - he posed as a model in a magazine commercial for a hair-enhancing comb.
The Oscar-winning Hollywood legend was still a budding actor in New York City when he took part in an advertising campaign for Remington's Hot Comb in the early 1970s.
A copy of the poster ad, thought to date from 1973, a year before De Niro's Academy Award-winning turn in The Godfather: Part II, has been unearthed by U.S. film critic Roger Ebert.
It shows the actor suffering several hair disasters in an open-top car, on a tennis court, and in the middle of a rainstorm.
Pictures of De Niro looking finely-groomed and with a sexy woman on his arm appear at the bottom of the ad - with text explaining that the Hot Comb will prevent the user from "looking like the nation's number one disaster area".
